? it was ronald reagan. back in the late 1980's, he and gorbachev came within inches of a bilateral deal to begin to eradicate the world, to save the world from these nuclear- weapons. now having said that, the thing that essentially prevented the deal were the false claims made by the nuclear weapons laboratories. in this particular case, los alamos' sister laboratory in california, but false claims being made over star wars. that essentially is what prevented ronald reagan from friendly striking a al with gorbachev to rid the world of nuclear weapons. but i use this to point out the ongoing roll of the three nuclear weapons laboratories in this country, and the ignored it, and i would say unfavorable influence, that they have not only on national, but international nuclear weapons policies. >> who runs the lab now? >> specifically is being run for the government bought a limited liability corporation, which is for-profit, which is a change since 2006. but the two dominant partners in this limited liability corporation for the bechtel corp., a famous for attempting to take over the water system
and in the same way that they can feel a kinship with ronald reagan when he tried to project a tougher line and ronald reagan won. >> rose: see, charlie, listen, it may work in this campaign. i don't really think so. because what's going on in the arab world today, across the arab world, is a war of ideas. there's a huge civil war across several different fronts going on there today. let's look at what they are. you've got, first of all, the shiite/sunni civil war going on most flagrantly and violently in syria. and it's very much playing out there. at the same time in syria you do have a certain democratic authoritarian overlay to that conflict. at the same time you have a war within islam between the salfy groups and the more mainstream-- in their context-- muslim brotherhood groups. that's what libya was about, that that's what the conflict in egypt was about when it exploded around our embassy. so to blame obama for an internal civil war inside either the arab world or islam i think that's a bit much. that's like blaming george w. bush for 9/11. well, some people do. some people say he
